    Finished the connection between right gauntlet hose with the flightsuit, using a white elastic strap and a clip. The elastic strip is sewn (IŽm just a beginner) to the flightsuit with the male part of the clip and the mother part of the clip is fixed with a non-elastic black strap, screwed to the end of the hose.

    The elastic girth belt is a really good idea. Suited up, threading the nylon through the buckles seems to be the most difficult part to do. It probably saves a lot of time and hassle to just make it elastic.

    Did a test-fit today... still alot of work to do... and loose some pounds... Still missing the helmet, jetpack and EE-3 blaster. DidnŽt put on the sidearm with holster. Wookie-scalps are not fixed yet. The cod-piece and knee armour need to be fixed to the jumpsuit with velcro or magnets. The slot for the chest electronics is not cut into the flakvest.

    Check around at local sign shops. I called a few places asking if they had any scrap pieces they would give me for free. I got plenty of Sintra for all of my armor, including enough to make mistakes. Just depends on the shop.

    Hope this hepls?!

    After some really great suggestions and tips by Fekali (thanks again mate), I started to re-work some parts, to get much closer to the original ESB Boba Fett...

    Today I repainted the knife using some gold spraypaint.

    I fixed a very strong 5x5x1mm rare earth magnet using gaffertape to two safety pins. The other magnet will be fixed to the inside of the vest.

    Are you selling your current build? :o hope not - I've been watching Your thread silently for almost a year and you've been a great inspiration. I even made knees for my custom Mando following your build

    Thank you sooooo much for your kind words!!!

    No, I donŽt sell my current ESB Boba... just some parts. There are some bills to pay... and I always wanted to change the softparts, also the sidearm and holster, to get more accurate.
